Zoom was founded in 2011 by a lead engineer from Cisco Systems and more specifically WebEx. Zoom is one of the fastest growing video collaboration software around. Its main focus is with online video meetings, which can be adapted to host webinars.
Microsoft Teams is one of the most famous communication and collaboration platform, known for their workplace chat, video meetings, file storage and application integration. In 2018, Microsoft launch the Live events feature within Microsoft Teams. It allows Microsoft Teams users to host live events, especially for big internal webinar.
Even though Microsoft Teams allows to create one-to-many live event, it has some shortcomings in terms of marketing options for the organiser. Live events are limited when it comes to inviting the attendees outside of the organisation and leveraging it for lead generation. There is indeed no registration options when it comes to reaching a wider audience (only a public access link). Microsoft Teams Live Events doesn't provide advanced features such as webinar automations, smart forms, or customisable emails.
Having something to download adds friction for registrants and will reduce your webinar's attendance overall. Downloading a third party software every time to attend a webinar is usually not recommended in a B2B configuration (network, firewalls, etc.).
With Livestorm's entirely web-based experience, no download is required. You will bring more people to your webinars and miss less opportunities only for technical reasons.
Providing a frictionless experience to participants directly increases the average attendance in every webinar session. Hence the need for a no-download webinar solution.
Not supporting the new standards in live video streaming (HTML5) can result in delays between the presenter and what the participants actually view (and can create confusion), poor user experience or worst: connectivity issues.
Livestorm works in WebRTC. Real-time, with no install required from the participants nor the hosts.
